Tickets for 2013 bash set to go on sale this Friday (November 30)

Tickets for the Reading and Leeds Festivals 2013 will go on sale this Friday (November 30) with a new deposit scheme.

The first Reading and Leeds Festivals acts will be announced on Thursday (November 29) with tickets going on sale at 9am the following day. For a limited period until December 31, tickets will be sold at 2012 prices.

Organisers are also introducing a £50 deposit scheme for 2013, meaning fans can guarantee a place at the bash early and pay the full balance before March 31, 2013.

It was confirmed earlier this year that Reading and Leeds 2013 will feature three new stages with festival organiser Melvin Benn announcing that: “There will quite a bit more dance music, quite a bit more other bits and pieces.”

The Cure, Foo Fighters and Kasabian headlined this summer’s Reading And Leeds Festivals, with The Vaccines, Enter Shikari, At The Drive-In, Bombay Bicycle Club, You Me At Six and All Time Low all playing high-profile slots.
